on sunday, house minority leader nancy pelosi and majority leader eric cantor laid out the economic dividing lines. >> what we need is growth. we need growth with jobs. and if you have spending cuts, education of our children and other investments like the national institutes of health where you are hindering growth, you're not going to reduce the deficit. so it is almost a false argument to say we have a spending problem. we have a budget deficit problem that we have to address. we think the deficit and the national debt are at immoral levels. we think they must be reduced. we're sick and tired of paying interest on the national debt. and that's 15% -- that's a large percentage of the budget. >> the tax fight for the president means higher taxes, more revenue. again, we can't be raising taxes every three months in this town, david. and you know, the bottom line is we want tax reform, but we want to go plug thosepresident talks bring down tax rates because we think that's pro-growth and we can let the economy grow and let people earn more money and keep more of it. the president's not talkin

make cuts as well. >> house minority leader nancy pelosi talking about sequestration and the budget on "fox news sunday" with chris wallace. she says the democratic party has made enough spending cuts though it is open to more and what the economy really needs is growth and new revenue. earlier this morning i had the opportunity to is sit down with chris wallace and hear more about his exclusive interview with the congress woman. chris, your conversation with nancy pelosi earlier today was actually the other day that you pretaped it, she seemed to indicate that democrats are bound and determined to raise taxes again. >> absolutely. you know, it is the old line the president used it during the campaign, balanced approach. it can't all be spending cuts, it has to be spending cuts and also some tax increases on the wealthy and loo it worked for them in the campaign. it worked during the argument over the fiscal cliff. i think and you see the president making the case now it is a choice between helping the middle class who the white house says will be hurt by these automatic spending cu

not getting the spenting under control. bill: nancy pelosi says it's a false argument to say we have expanding problem. >> the president said something similar to speaker boehner. of course, we have spending problem. bill: speaker boehner has been on the opposite side of that for years now saying the president got cold feet when it came to getting big deal and not forced into sequestration. >> i think the president had a great hunt in october and early december to get a lot of these things out of the way and he chose not to. it's time for the president to lead. and we wouldn't be going from one crisis to another. when you refuse to lead you allow yourself to be defined by crisis. why is it we are constantly churching from one crisis to another instead of solving these problems. i'm ready to solve them now, i think we should have solved them last year. but we did increase taxes last year on the group the president said was the solution for solving the revenue problem. it's a big issue to handle. we'll catch up the hearing tomorrow. senator mccain suggests for every three retirees, replace one a

votes and a minority of republicans. >> and basically hand power to nancy pelosi. >> again. that has been the precedent. >> governor, a lot of talk -- there's been a lot of talk about defense cuts, which certainly are half of the sequester. there are other programs being cut. 9.4% to unemployment benefits, 600,000 children and women lose food aid, 10,000 teachers fired. they're trying to emerge from the rock of being unsympathetic to the working poor, the middle class. you have these sequester cuts take place that undermines any argument. >> i depart from democratic orthodoxy in this one. i so bad want to cut all the fat out of the pentagon that i'm willing to do this. it's terrible. i hope we can restore some of the things. 2% medicaid cuts don't have any effect on patient care whatsoever. it is true that there are some bad cuts in there from a democratic point of view. we are never again going to get a chance to cut the pentagon back from where it's been. pentagon hasn't had any significant cuts for 30 years. a lot of money that's going to be cut is money that was not asked for but

just happen to be the cities represented by congressional leaders nancy pelosi, john boehner. perhaps the most visible symbol of the damage caused by firearms is jim langevin. he had a gun accident as a police station where he was serving as a junior cadet. he's urged his colleagues on capitol hill to invite victims of gun violence to be their guests at the state of the union tomorrow. thirty democrats are planning to do so, with over 190 shooting on an average day in america, they should have no problem finding people who's lives have been scarred by guns. joining me tonight, it is my pressure to welcome from washington, d.c. jim langevin. welcome to the war room, thank you for being with us, head of this speech and head of your big idea. >> good evening. thanks for having me on the program. >> of course. tell me, what do you hope to achieve by bringing victims of gun violence to the state of the union? >> well, we're all touched and our hearts broken when we heard the news of what transpired in newtown connecticut. no one wants to see that happen again. we need to keep the focus on

with the economy? you've had nancy pelosi over the weekend saying the fact that we have a spending and debt problem is a false argument. you've got him disbanding the jobs council. so i'm not optimistic, but it does appear that he's going to pivot to the economy now. at this point he's starting to look like a ballet dancer, and i hope he makes the right decision. jon: andrew, do you agree the economy is the number one issue? >> no doubt about that. i do disagree with the issues that he talked about, i definitely believe that the economy is number one for the public, and that's where the president is going to focus tomorrow night. jon: well, if the economy is the number one thing, chris, he did get reelected, essentially, you know, on, well, i mean, mitt romney hammered him on the economy, and president obama still got reelected. >> well, he did. i don't know that he did a great job point out the challenges to the economy. we saw the economy start to rebound. but half of americans still believe we are in recession. so this could kind of be the nixon goes to china time for obama. if he were to reach
